Ceramiche Althea, leading company in the field of sanitary tools alongside Unibat on Davide Giugliano's Aprilia RSV4 in World Superbike. The return to motorcycle racing competition, in which Althea has been present since 2008 and has collected the most ambitious goals up until 2011 World Superbike Championship is the final part of a path that has seen Genesio Bevilacqua’s company obtain a "100 % Made in Italy " certification, the only Italian brand to have received a prestigious award from the Homologation Dept. involved with the Ministry of Productive Activities. Ceramiche Althea not only increased its production in Italy (located in the modern production plant in Civita Castellana) but uses raw materials and semi processed which are exclusively Italian. A great effort, a strong message of hope for the Italian economy.
Genesio Bevilacqua: “I am happy and proud to have brought the brand Althea Ceramiche in the world of motorcycle racing. This is the last step of a path that has seen my company fully sink their roots in Italy, until obtaining the prestigious certificate "100% Made in Italy". Our commitment could not but interact with the Superbike World Championship, a league that not only is part of our history, but that is has visibly increased thanks to Dorna and the worldwide media. Starting from next weekend at the Aragon Motorland, the brand Althea Ceramiche will appear on Davide Giugliano’s bike, together with other prestigious brands, completing a team "100% Made in Italy" with Althea, Aprilia and Unibat, as well as Italian technicians and rider. We are in Aragon anxious to be able to improve the difficult weekend at Phillip Island. We are ready and determined to achieve the results that we always compete.
Davide Giugliano: “After my recent experience in Australia, I will be facing this second round of the World Superbike with a lot of optimism. At Phillip Island, I was able to get to better know my team, I became more familiar with the Aprilia RSV4 and I have learned to put it in place. Aragon is a track that I like and where I've always been very strong, even though I did not achieve the results I had expected. The long straight part of the track penalized me last year but this year it shouldn’t be a problem; therefore, we can tackle Spain with confidence and fight for the positions that count."
